notes from natasha
MEL stands for 'most exquisite leather.' This one is just that. Lightweight enough for the largest designs.

Nubuck is a top grain polished leather. Softer and smoother than suede, which is the back side of the leather. We source our mel nubuck leathers from Italy. Nubuck is meant to pick up natural oils over time from hands and the environment. This adds to the character and patina and helps build up its own resistance to stains. We still recommend some basic care. Avoid contact with heavy oils and wax. Be cautious wearing against denim as some denim dyes can rub off on leathers. MEL dark brown nubuck has a soft and drapey hand. 

Additional cost for custom designs - $20
